Law Firm Handling Spousal Support Issues In Los Angeles
Spousal support, also known as alimony, is generally calculated at the beginning of the marital dissolution case by a program known as DissoMaster. This program is also used to determine child support payments. At the time the case is resolved, either through settlement or trial, other factors may come into play when making a spousal support determination.
The spouse who receives alimony, at the time of resolution, has a duty under California law to become self-supporting. Support payments are capped at the standard of living enjoyed by the parties during their marriage. They are limited by the ability of the payer (i.e., the individual paying spousal support) to pay.
Whether you are requesting alimony or are being asked to make spousal support payments, it is important to have a skilled attorney on your side to help you protect your interests.
